Hey there South.Texas

I'm not sure what the differences may be. I know that around '82, MEC changed their 600s so that some of the dies were plastic (wad guide too)... maybe that is the difference.

I recently purchased a 12 gauge sizemaster and some 16 gauge sizemaster dies... and swapped them out with no problems. (It was after that swap that I realized that there were SM77 and SM82).

If you really need to know, here's MECs website. Call them up. They are VERY helpful. (and I used to call them quite often)
I've got 4 single stage presses (old 600s, versamecs, and a new 600) that have ALL had the dies swapped off and on. The parts always seem to fit... :)

I hope that helps.

Maggs,

PS.... IF you get a good deal on a Sizemaster (I wouldn't worry about SM77 vs. SM82) .

I have both. The 77 is older, has a different wad guide, finger inserts in a metal holder, vs 82 with 1 piece all plastic wad guide (not interchange able because the rod holding the guide is also different). The crimp starter on the 77 is also all metal with an insert for different crimps ( either will fit if you have the stud for the plastic one). The final crimp function is the same except the 77 is all metal and the 82 is plastic.

I don't have any preference for either. Both work great.
